The volume on my STB is louder than regular tv through my antenna (easy for my wife) ,I have used the STB volume control but is still doesn't change the volume. I use the HDMI out and Im thinking the STB volume doesnt change that?
well the fios signal is stronger than an over the air antenna, so it sounds like that may be normal. What would be abnormal is if you couldn't control the volume of the STB and it was just constantly loud. What you can do to check that is go into the menu by hitting the menu button, go down and choose settings, and then go to audio. in the audio section you want to choose volume control and set it to variable. after it being set to variable you can then go to set top box volume and control the volume.
